The December Garden
The weather is considerably cooler and we have had quite a bit of rain which has been helping growth. We have also been fairly pest free. This means we’ve been able to slack off a little from garden chores without feeling too guilty. And a good thing too with the upcoming holidays approaching. Still, spending a quiet hour in the garden may be just what is called for. Keep up with weeding and check the soil for dryness.
There is still time to plant some more lettuce to harvest before the really cold days of January that could bring a frost. Other crops that can still be planted include celery, cauliflower, cabbage, and carrots. And let’s not forget the cool season herbs that include parsley, thyme, sage, dill, fennel, and cilantro.

Kale, mums, and chives make a lovely fall display.
